Lord Zuckerberg Sues Native Hawaiians to Force Sale of Ancestral Land for His $100 Million Estate
Lord Zuckerberg Wants Expand His Kingdom
A Honolulu newspaper is reporting the Mark Zuckerberg is wanting to expand his property to 700 acres in an attempt to gain more privacy, he purchased the land on Kauai for $100 Million.
From The Star Advertiser:
Close to a dozen small parcels within Zuckerberg’s Kauai estate are owned by kamaaina families who have rights to traverse the billionaire’s otherwise private domain.
Now the Facebook CEO is trying to enhance the seclusion of his property by filing several lawsuits aimed at forcing these families to sell their land at a public court auction to the highest bidder.
The legal action known as “quiet title and partition” isn’t uncommon in Hawaii. Yet even with an order from a judge and financial compensation, forcing people to sell land that has been in their families for generations can be off-putting — especially when it’s driven by the sixth-richest person in the world.
Previously Mark Zuckerberg angered people when he built a 6 foot high stone wall around the property to keep people out, this happened after he criticized Donald Trump for wanting to build a wall along the southern U.S. border.
